Celebrate Screen-Free Week!
On May 1-7, children, families—whole schools and communities—will rediscover the joys of life beyond the screen. Plan to unplug from digital entertainment and spend all that free time playing, daydreaming, creating, exploring and connecting with family and friends! One great way to unplug is reading books! Screen Free Week is also Children’s Book Week!
Taking a break from TV, laptops, tablets, smartphones, and video games is easier–not to mention more fun–when you’re taking a break with others!
Here are just a few of the great events planned for May 1 – 7, 2017! Don’t see an event in your state? Organizing a Screen Free Week is easy! Check out our handouts and resources, then register your event to be listed here!”
